Who Am I? Here’s the Quick & Dirty Version

I’m an award-winning author who turns wickedly strong tea into imaginative fiction. With a creative and curious mind, my stories run the gamut from historical fantasy to modern-day paranormal, and magical realism to humor-laced dark fantasy.

I’ve got two, complete historical fantasy series under my belt: The Osteria Chronicles and Domna, plus a fair number of short stories

Right now, I’m at work on a contemporary fantasy trilogy that’s filled with magic, mystery, snarky humor, and zombies because who doesn’t love zombies…especially ones with a posh British accent.

I’m also the host of The Book Owl Podcast where I explore the tales of quirky books and literary lore. It’s a book nerd’s paradise over there so be sure to give it a listen wherever you listen to podcasts.

When I’m not creating worlds or tormenting my characters, I conjure homemade wine and beer, plod around in the garden, and travel near and far (or dream about doing so for the time being).

Maybe You’d Like to Know a Bit More?

I worked for years in science before discovering my true passion in writing. My fascination for myths, history, and how they interweave inspired my flagship series, The Osteria Chronicles.

The Osteria Chronicles, takes readers into a world in which the gods, heroes, and myths of Ancient Greece come to life as you’ve never seen them before. From gods behaving badly to heroes battling internal and external monsters, the six-book collection has been “highly recommended” by many, deemed as a “guilty pleasure” by some,

Also set in the world of Osteria is my serialized novel Domna, an epic tale of a woman whose life changes when she reprimands the wrong man. As she struggles through a world full of vicious ambition and betrayal, she quickly learns that destiny isn’t given by the gods. It’s made by cunning, endurance, and, at times, bloodshed.

Warning: You may lose many hours once you begin Domna’s tale. As one reader noted, there was “so much political intrigue, betrayal and backstabbing I just HAD to keep on reading.”
